The dedicated Vello EW-88C Lens Hood is specifically designed for use with Canon's EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens. It is primarily used to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of it. A dedicated hood is crafted to perfectly suit the specific focal length of the lens it is designed for. Additionally, this hood features a non-glare matte finish on the interior surface to further prevent or limit lens flare. Also, since the end of the lens is extended, you get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

The "petal" shape of this lens hood maximizes the amount of hood coverage for the minimum amount of weight and hood area. The bayonet mount is designed to also work in the reversed position, allowing the hood to be placed backwards over the lens for a more compact storage solution. Also, this hood has an improved durable metal release button mechanism for fast and reliable removal.

Designed to accommodate the exact angle of view of the camera's lens
Minimizes flare and ghosting by blocking out stray light
Protects your lens from accidental impact and the elements
Durable metal release button mechanism ensures a more reliable attachment to the lens.

    EW-88C Dedicated Lens Hood with Metal Lock is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect alternative to the stock hood. I'll admit, I usually only spend money on Canon-branded accessories, but this time I simply didn't want to fork out $59 for a Canon replacement hood for my EF 24-70 f/2.8 L II.... so, I gave this Vello a try, and I'm so glad I did! Fit is perfect. Not too tight, not loose. The only difference physically that I can actually see is that the interior of the hood is not flocked (coated in the fuzzy black coating) like the Canon branded hoods are. I don't think that's going to make a difference to the image in the end. Add in the fact that it's made with metal locking components (instead of plastic ones on the Canon) and this has all the promise of being a win, win. Very happy I saved a bunch of money and will certainly opt for other Vello hoods when the need arises.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good hood but too tight when reversing. I've been very pleased with the Vellow lens hoods I have purchased (I have three.) The fit and feel is very nice. They aren't quite as sturdy feeling as the Canon OEM hoods but the price is much better! The only complaint I have about this particular lens hood is that it is very tight when mounting it in reverse for storage. I thought it would loosen up after using it a while but it did not. The hood mounts smoothly when in the forward direction so I just keep it on that way without reversing it, even when storing the 24-70.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement The original hood that came with my lens had become very loose fitting. I've purchased other products in the past manufactured by Vello with very good success. The price difference between the OEM hood and the Vello hood is significant. If I had never purchased anything in the past by Vello, the price difference would have raised some red flags as to the quality. I felt very comfortable with this purchase from the start and was very happy to see once I received it that it is manufactured very well and fits perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Replacement I am not a big fan of knock-off products, but in this case the Vello hood surpassed the quality of the Canon hood that it replaced. It goes on and comes off smoother. And its cost is 1/4 of the Canon's. The little push button assembly on the Canon hood broke on two occasions despite great care. I think there's a fundamental design flaw on the Canon hood, which I think is the worst of all L lenses that I own. I am pleased with my purchase. And thank you B&H for quickly processing the order, as always.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality for affordable price. After losing my Canon lens hood I decided to give this much less expensive version a try; I couldn't be more pleased; it fits well, functions well and seems to be every bit as good as my original Canon lens hood.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Good or Better Than Canon'$ Original Fit and finish are the same as the original equipment Canon supplies with their 24-70mm F/2.8 Series II zoom, and much cheaper to replace when I break it again, which I most likely will...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than OEM. I bought this due to the stock canon 24-70 lens hood locking mechanism broke. This replacement is easier to install which makes my life easier. Give this one a go it won't disappoint.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as good as OEM I jammed the little locking mechanism on the OEM lens hood. It made no sense to me to buy Canon's much more expensive piece of plastic. It is 100% as good.
